A Glastonbury man was arrested earlier this month after 46 marijuana plants were seized from a home in town.

Ronald Purvis was arrested in connection with running “an illegal marijuana grow operation in the town.”

East Central Narcotics Taskforce members executed a warrant at a home on Rosebud Lane on Aug. 21 where plants and indoor grow equipment was seized by authorities.

Purvis was charged with cultivation of marijuana, possession of more than 4 ounces of marijuana, operating a drug factory, possession of marijuana with intent to sell and possession of drug paraphernalia.

He is being held on a $45,000 bond.

East Central Narcotics Taskforce consists of Manchester, South Windsor, Vernon and Glastonbury officers. Anyone with any information about illegal drug activity in that area is asked to call East Central Narcotics Taskforce at 860-645-5548.  All calls will be kept anonymous.
